DIRECTIONS FOR USING 
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS FLOOR ENAMEL 

The surface must be thoroughly dry and free from 
loose paint, grease and dirt. Brush the paint out thor- 
oughly into thin even coats, working the paint well into 
the surface. Be sure each coat is perfectly dry and hard 
before applying the next coat. 

New Wood Floors: 

For the first coat add one pint S-W Exolvent or tur- 
pentine to the gallon of enamel. The second and third 
coat should be applied just as the material comes from 
the package. 

Previously Painted Wood Floors: 

Touch up all bare spots as directed for "New Floors/' 
Sandpaper well when dry and follow with one or two 
coats without thinning. 

If there are cracks or spaces between boards, fill these 
with Sherwin-Williams Crack and Seam Filler AFTER 
the first coat of Floor Enamel has been applied. 

Linoleum: 

Wipe linoleum with benzine to remove grease and 
turpentine to remove wax. Apply Sherwin-Williams 
Floor Enamel as directed for New Wood, 

Linoleum that is badly cracked or chipped off, does 
not present a satisfactory surface for enamel. 

NEW CONCRETE FLOORS s [Caution] 

Painting a cold concrete floor or painting in a cold, 
wet room is not to be recommended because it retards 
the drying of the enamel. 

Cement floors laid directly on the ground without ade- 
quate drainage, seldom present a good surface for paint- 
ing, because moisture will cause the paint to peel, or so 
destroy the life of the film as to cause it to remain in a 
sticky condition. 

The surface must also be neutral or free from alkali as 
an alkaline surface will prevent the proper drying of the 
paint film. To test for alkalinity, wet various spots on the 
floor with water and place a piece of red litmus paper on 
each spot. Allow to stand for a few minutes and if litmus 
turns blue it is an indication that there is alkali present. 
In such cases the alkali should be neutralized by applying 
a wash to the floor made up of 3 pounds Zinc Sulfate to 
the gallon of water. Let dry thoroughly /at least 3 day 
after which brush the surface thoroughly to remove any 
remaining crystals. 

Reduce the first coat of Sherwin-Williams Floor Enamel 
with one half pint of S-W Exolvent or turpentine and 
one-half pint pure raw linseed oil to the gallon of enam* 
To the second coat add one-half pint S-W Exolvent or 
turpentine. The third coat should be applied without 
I thinning. 

y On extremely porous surfaces thin first coat with one ] 

pint of S-W Exolvent or turpentine and one and one-half 
pints of raw linseed oil to the gallon of enamel. 

Previously Painted Concrete Floors: 

Touch up any bare spots as directed for new concrete. 
When thoroughly dry apply one or two coats without 
thinning. 

NOTE: — If Sherwin-Williams Floor Enamel becomes 
too heavy for easy brushing, thin slightly with S-W 
Exolvent or turpentine.
